Lahiri, 11 shots behind, re-sets goal at PGA Championship

PGA Championship- Round One

You can't particularly blame him.

Should he go on to win, he'd become the first Japanese player to win a major championship.

CHARLOTTE, North Carolina: Denmark's Thorbjorn Olesen and American Kevin Kisner each closed with birdies Thursday to share a one-stroke lead at the PGA Championship while Jordan Spieth and Rory McIlroy stumbled in quest of golf history.

Despite rain earlier in the week, the SubAir system at Quail Hollow pulls moisture from the greens.

"Frankly I played solid but it was only in the second nine that I got going". This year, while he made the cut in each of the first three, a tie for 43rd at the Masters was the best he could muster. "I have to play great but we're only halfway through". It suits my eye. "I felt like I gave myself a lot of opportunities, and it was a very, very nice way to finish with that long putt on 18".

It was disaster from there.

Day finds himself two shots out of first place at -6 overall.

Clubhouse leader Olesen curled in a 25-foot birdie at the last to set the pace.

Jimmy Walker (Oklahoma City native): The defending champion is tied for 97th at 8-over 150, but improved by 12 shots on Friday with a 2-under 69 that included five birdies and three bogeys. Of the 15 players under par who have completed the second round, Kang is the only one with two rounds in the 70s.

"Length is a key factor out here, and especially when it's as wet as it is, it makes those fairways a bit wider", Koepka added, noting how the ball tends to stop near its landing spot.

"The greens are so firm, you can't control your spin".

American Chris Stroud, in the last group off the 10th tee on Friday, is the top contender among those yet to finish their second round. It's the highest score to lead after the first round of the PGA Championship since Matt Kuchar shot 67 at Whistling Straits in 2010.

"It's been a good year kind of all across the board", Fowler said. "I just need to continue to do what we've been doing".

One thing about Rory McIlroy, there is rarely a tiresome moment.

"No reason to waste any extra energy", Fowler said. "We haven't played well in them yet this year but every year you learn more about the majors and how to approach them". So I was looking forward to getting out with those guys.

"Luckily it got out of the bunker and onto the other side".
